ZHAO likes to record the events and thoughts on canvas or wooden boards. "When the feeling changes, the color in my heart will also change. That is a magic moment. I want to paint those profound down." The paint and composition are memories and transition of inner life. The work explores the interaction between memory and feeling, which fills the weird atmosphere. He assembles a unique satire aesthetic with the element of horror.
The recent creation attempts to transfer the plane painting to the three-dimensional works, using white glue as a medium, and exploring another possibility of painting through the ductility, scalability and solidified translucency of white glue. The main axis is "traces", whether left behind is physical or psychological friction, it’s the path of time, the storage of memory, and the fermentative process and representative way of art works.
